    I need to remember to log on to document my progress...

    I don't mind a volunteered aspect of simplicity but when you are forced into it, it is a pain. My clothes dryer went out, my phone broke, and to top it all off I lost all my school books... this has not been my week.

    Hmm... I now need to wash my coffee mug. It saves on landfill space but now it produces waste water... there is always a trade-off with things.

    I did the challenge yesterday but I didn't log in to report.... Why? I don't have internet at home and I was too busy at home cleaning up. I keep using the WiFi at Starbucks to report, which helps with my mug challenge. ;)

    The shutting off of my faucet while brushing my teeth, it is an easy adaptation. Checking social media only once a day is a bit more challenging and using a mug at my local Starbucks is easier than I thought... because they wash it. lol

    didn't buy coffee today... made my own but still used the mug ;-) ... social media (FB) - didn't missing anything. Yup, brushed my teeth and shut the water off while brushing...

    Day One... I purchased a mug today from Starbucks... $22.95? Well, they washed it before filling it for me. I do have the bad habit of drinking and driving with my coffee between my legs. The advantage is the insulation of the mug, it prevented me from getting my inner thighs cooked and the cup lid prevented any spillage from breaking or sharp turns in my car. Ahh... "checking social media"... I missed out on an estate sale this morning because I waited to check it in the evening... think I'll switch to morning views. Other than that, I didn't miss much at all and as for "brushing my teeth", yup, I shut the water off while brushing.
